Everyone knows garlic is healthy, and garlic contains Allicin which is a powerful antibiotic which is 15 times more powerful than penicillin for killing bacteria. Chewing, chopping, and smashing a clove of garlic releases the Allicin oil for great health. At the same time garlic lowers cholesterol and boost the immune system thus helping to prevent cancer and other debilitating diseases. Take a clove of garlic and remove the skin, chop it up and take it with a little bit of honey every morning for great health and vitality.
Tomatoes also contain lots of lycopene that’s a powerful antioxidant that’s well known to prevent Breast, Prostate, and Stomach Cancer and boost your immune system. Studies show that eating tomatoes lowers your risk of prostate cancer by more than 30%. And another study shows that eating tomatoes lowered your chances of coming down with pancreatic cancer by over 40%. And low levels of lycopene have been found in people who come down with colon cancer and growths… so it’s very important to eat your tomatoes.
